This Organization Rescues Mammals and Gives Them a Second Chance at Life

The volunteers in Wild Souls, Missouri rescue, rehabilitate wildlife mammals and release them safely into their natural habitat. The non-profit organization saves tiny animals like opossums, squirrels, raccoons, fox cubs, and other wild creatures that need help.

When the baby season is on, the volunteers have got their hands full. The newborns need to be fed every 2 hours, throughout a 24-hour process with a specialized formula for their body. And as they grow, they introduce solid, high-calcium foods to get those bones strong.

“These animals, they deserve a chance just like cats or dogs,” they told The Dodo. “And then we take them outside for a pre-release. And then we release them and say goodbye.”

The rescue also educates people on how to problem solve if there is a native wildlife conflict and aide conservation. If you want to follow their stories, have a look at their Instagram profile. You can also support them by donating money.
